History of Los Angeles

History of Los Angeles

History of California

The Los Angeles area was first inhabited by the Tongva and Chumash tribes. In 1542, Explorer Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo seized the area for the Spanish Empire while on an official exploring expedition along the pacific coast. Franciscan friar Junipero Serra sanctioned the building of the first mission in the area, Mission San Gabriel Arcangel. In 1781, forty-four settlers known as "Los Pobladores'' founded the pueblo (town) called "El Pueblo de Nuestra Señora la Reina de Los Ángeles," meaning "The Town of Our Lady the Queen of the Angels." Mexico claimed the current Los Angeles territory when it gained independence from Spain in 1821. Governor Pio Pico made Los Angeles Alta California's regional capital. America took control of California after a series of battles that resulted in the Treaty of Cahuenga, signed on January 13, 1847. The discovery of petroleum in the city in 1892 and the arrival of railroads in 1876 helped strengthen the city's economy. By 1900, the city's population had soared to 102,000.

Restaurant
The Los Angeles food scene is one of the country's truly authentic international food scenes. You can embark on a worldwide food tour by having Huevos divorciados barbecue at Casa De Campo at Brentwood for breakfast, Korean ramen at Alexandria Plaza for lunch, and barbecue at Bludso's Bar & Que in La Brea Avenue. You can also visit Philippe the Original in Chinatown for a French Dip Sandwich or Pink's Hot Dogs in Hollywood. Food trucks are also a popular thing in Los Angeles, so burritos are never far from you. If you buy land here, good food will be the least of your problems.

Sport
Sports lovers will feel right at home in Los Angeles as the city is home to eleven professional sports teams. The most popular sport in the city is basketball, and this is rightly so as the city is home to two teams that play in the National Basketball Association. The LA Lakers are the city's favorite team as they have won the Championship 17 times. The team has the legendary LeBron James on its roster and last won the Champion in 2020, a win widely celebrated in the city like a carnival. People from all over the world visit the city to watch LeBron play live. Some of the other professional sports teams in the city include LA Clippers, Los Angeles Galaxy, and Los Angeles FC.

Parks
Have you always dreamt of moving close to the famous Hollywood sign and taking a picture? Lake Hollywood Park will take you as close to the renowned sign as you can ever get. What's more? The park is dog friendly, so you might come in contact with as many canines as humans. Maybe not as standard compared to hiking paths near the city, but Lake Hollywood Park offers two notable hiking paths; one takes you close to the Hollywood sign while the other takes you around the reservoir.

The Barnsdall Art Park, located in the East Hollywood district, is one of Los Angeles's best-kept secrets. Start your experience with a tour at the Hollyhock House, then proceed to the Barnsdall Gallery Theater, which hosts contemporary art exhibitions, panel discussions, and plays. Your last stop should be at the Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery. You can also just swing by to take advantage of the park's green spaces, perfect for picnics.
